A rapid, accurate, and reliable molecular test for STEC detection from a variety of food samples.
The Atlas® STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay utilizes a novel approach for screening food samples for the presence of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), one of the most common pathogens associated with foodborne illness. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are approximately 265,000 STEC-related infections annually in the United States. Although E. coli O157:H7 is the most commonly identified STEC in North America, non-O157 STECs have also been implicated in human illness and food recalls.
The Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay is designed for the Atlas System, a fully automated molecular pathogen detection system. By combining a streamlined process with superior technology, the Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay, together with the Atlas System, provides a fast, accurate result and the ultimate confidence in product quality.
As with other Atlas Detection Assays, the Atlas STEC EG2 Combo Detection Assay has an easy 3-step process that generates accurate results faster:
